Martha Coakley arrived with her husband at the Brooks School in Medford early Tuesday morning to cast her vote. She walked arm-in-arm with her husband into the polls.

They were done minutes later, because turnout here has been very light, and no one else was voting. Coakley says she will take some time to relax on this primary day and let her get-out-the-vote machine do its work.

She expects a 20 percent turnout, but the secretary of state says predicts it could be just 5 to 9 percent. Turnout will be key in this race, because whichever candidate can get their voters to the polls has the chance to prevail.
